NCTR Annual Report 2023-2024


Released June 4, 2024 — The National Center for Teacher Residencies’ (NCTR) most recent data collections show that NCTR and teacher residency programs continue to expand in scope and strengthen the teacher residency movement.* NCTR supported the design and launch of 18 teacher residency programs through its Residency Design Academy (RDA) and the sustainability, growth, and improvement of existing teacher residency programs through the NCTR Network. NCTR’s consulting services are aligned with the organization’s research-based Levers for Equitable Teacher Residencies, which define the design and implementation of high-quality teacher residency programs and identify the benchmarks for program development. NCTR’s Black Educators Initiative (BEI) additionally continues to support the NCTR Network in recruiting and preparing Black educators, and increasing student access to effective Black teachers.
